SHARE A.F. WIVES SNUFF OUT SQUADRON’S RISQUE TRADITION

A tradition at the 325th Bomb Squadron has come to an end after wives and girlfriends of Air Force fliers complained about scantily dressed women lighting the men's cigars.

Fairchild officials said Saturday they are discontinuing a tradition of hiring two scantily clad women to appear at the all-male squadron's formal dinner in the fall.Some women objected to their husbands and boyfriends attending a function where women in lingerie light the officers' cigars and pose for pictures.

"I am offended. I am furious," said one officer's wife who asked not to be identified.

Base officials said nothing improper or demeaning has occurred while two professional models were at the squadron's annual dinner.
